OWA authentication problem

Since 1 week i have a weird problem with OWA.
When users are logged in in OWA and when they do "log off" (right top of screen) again their username and password are asked.
I use a front-end server for my OWA users.

When i test this on the back-end server, it works fine.

Some setting in IIS ?

In regards to this problem, it probably has to do with permissions or
settings on the exchweb virtual directory in IIS. The logoff button just
points to an ASP page there - http://server/exchweb/bin/usa/logoff.asp for
example. In Internet Services Manager, look at the properties of
exchweb\bin. Try enabling anonymous access, or clicking "Create" and saving

Have a look at the exchweb Virtual Directories on both servers, and make sure that they are configured to all Anonymous Access

Well i think i found it myself.
When i set the domain name on the exchweb/bin it was solved.
But i reward the points to both of you because you set me in the right direction.
